National Economies, National Industries and National Resources are quietly dismantled and hoovered out by silent ram-raids (why is SE, East and Central Regional Water mostly owned by Morgan Stanley?

That's not racist by the way, just questioning why at the end of 40-odd years in the EU much of the UK's natural resources are owned by foreign Multinational Corporations). They have no interest in you or I, beyond what they can syphon out of you bank account in return for supplying you with something you once owned.


This is a direct result of Tory ideology and dogma, not our membership of the EU. As is "austerity" as practiced in the UK to the benefit of shareholders in Serco, G4S, Capita, etc. and the detriment of everyone else.

Not sure how the EU is to blame for the Tory drive to privatise and outsource all our services and state functions and then make us pay through the nose for a less good version of them. It's the natural conclusion of Thatcherism and "there's no such thing as society".
